Quality all the way. All the little touches of a five star motel, plus the added bonus of a kitchenette. The host and staff were very friendly and caring. Very conveniently located. I always stayed at Yamba enroute from Sydney to Brisbane, but this is my new home away from home. Quality products, furniture and linens. Everything was clean and...

I've stayed in many hotels in this price range & fully expected something cheap & cheerful without any frills so we were really pleasantly surprised with the standard of this hotel. Ballina Palms truely has been reinvented as a boutique hotel by the current owner. With a not too over the top Balinese theme, brand new bathroom, kitchenette, furniture &...

This motel is on a busy road within East Ballina, so at night (and even the day) you do hear the constant flow of traffic noise, it does settle down late at night and with the TV on, the noise of the traffic does "disappear" so to speak. The girls are extremly friendly and welcome you with open arms. They...

This is a well maintained hotel with a nice ambience. Service was somewhat perfunctory but the room impressed. It had tasteful decor and fittings with attention to detail. I do like plantation shutters rather than blinds or curtains. The bed was comfortable and the room was cooled by a split system A/C. The bathroom taps were fickle but I eventually...

Very pleasant motel with friendly and helpful staff. We stayed for one night in a beautifully furnished room (Room 3) with quality fittings. I loved the plantation blinds. It was spacious, comfortable and clean.There's a lovely little Bali-style gazebo next to the pool where you can sit and have a drink after a day's driving. Asian sculptures and tall palms...

I have been staying at another Hotel for 17 years and when new owners changed the quality standard, I began to search for a new place. Trip Advisor led me to Ballina Palms and I was welcomed by Sherry and Laurie, relief Managers, with warm and welcoming greetings. The room is truly outstanding and the comfort is what I look...

When we arrived you were made to feel welcomed the rooms are spotless and as you see in the photos luxury and atmosphere at its best we could not fault it. Short stroll down the road to the walking path along the beach. We would definitely recommend staying here.
